PaaS, DevOps and OpenStack for the Enterprise
Already OpenStack is a vibrant vendor partner community

In previous blog we introduced ‘Private PaaS‘ as a major segment that will drive overall Enterprise Cloud adoption. We touched on how Appscale enables a ‘Google in a Box’ for the PaaS segment, along with others like Apprenda and Cloudbees.

Openstack for the Enterprise

Another option is of course OpenStack and despite the VMware CEO claiming it’s not for the enterprise, it’s more likely it will become extremely popular in this space.

Already OpenStack is a vibrant vendor partner community, meaning that the core platform can be extended in many different ways, such as high availability, federation, and more, and so can be tailored for the many demanding requirements of large enterprise customers.

For example Cisco is one vendor who offers an Openstack implementation, on their UCS platform. This blog from Omar Sultan explains how it fits into their existing product strategy, including their existing Cloud components like Intelligent Automation and newly acquired Virtuata and vCider.

Our new white paper Enterprise Cloud will have a dedicated chapter on OpenStack for the Enteprise, describing these different partners and how they contribute to this class of solution.

PaaS and DevOps

In particular we’ll focus on PaaS and DevOps.

Clearly with vendor support like Cisco, OpenStack would be ideal for an IaaS scenario – Infrastructure as a Service. But what about the higher Cloud stack layers?

PaaS, Platform as a Service, is about far more than simply providing the middleware software components, as-a-Service.

The value here is derived from the productivity impact it has on software developers, how quickly they can push through changes to the organization that enable new business initiatives like launching a new product. Given the complexities of software development, and the complexity of a large enterprise IT estate, this is therefore a complicated ask.

For example Cloudbees, a PaaS provider, is based around wrapping Jenkins software, providing a core value of enabling developers to utilize “Continuous Integration” as a faster mode of extreme programming.

So examples in the OpenStack world would include CloudMunch, which offers a Jenkins plugin to offer these same working models and benefits.

Our Enterprise Cloud white paper will explore many more of these vendors, and how they enable Openstack for the Enterprise. Stay tuned..
